Construction is underway on the new Psychiatric Emergency Center for JPS Health Network and renderings have been completed.
This building will be located on the southwest side of campus, along Allen Street at South Jennings Avenue. The demolition of the Hemphill Behavioral Health Center, a non-bond project, paved the way for the start of the PEC construction. The first component of this project will be the connector building between the Trinity Springs Pavilion and PEC. JT Vaughn Construction, LLC were approved to work on the project by the Tarrant County Commissioners on August 2, 2022. The total cost for the construction of the PEC will be $80 million, bond funded.
A groundbreaking event for the Psychiatric Emergency Center was held last October.
